Thanks for your reply!
Riding Australia slopes mainly might pop back over to NZ at some stage not really a lot of pow over here... lately its been spring snow conditions and groomers (can get icy often).
I plan on riding mostly groomers, not much of a speed freak but when i become more advanced i will probably be trying to as you say 'bombing down a mountain as fast as you can'.. i would like to try some back country and pow if we ever get any good dumps over here. But for the moment mostly groomers.
Also thought id add my height which i forgot to post: 5'6 (169cm).
Sounds like you're looking for a all mountain board that can hold a edge on ice, your conditions sound a lot like the east coast in the USA. The Lib tech TRS C2 BTX won't be too advanced for you, after a day or maybe two you'll get used to the camber/rocker/camber profile and the magne-traction will help on the ice. Below are a few suggestions I was looking at getting when I was board shopping for something similar.
Lib Tech Hot Knife (camber/rocker/camber)
Lib Tech Darker Series (camber/rocker/camber and stiffer)
Never Summer SL (camber/rocker/camber)
Never Summer Proto (camber/rocker/camber)
Yes- Pick Your Line (rocker/camber/rocker and not a pow board but floats great on it according to a lot of reviews here)
Jones flagship (rocker/camber/rocker and stiffer)
Rossi Templar (rocker/camber/rocker and stiffer)
Rossi One Magtek (rocker/camber/rocker and stiffer)
You could also look into a fully cambered board as well.
